Nathan Benderson Park Rowing Tower
Nathan Benderson Park is choice venue for World Rowing, hosting the World Rowing Championship in 2017, the Masters Regatta in 2018 and slated for the U23 in 2019. The five-story Finish Tower was designed as an instrument for viewing by embracing precision and sight. The form of the building was generated by the need to be parallel with the rowing lanes for viewing while creating a space perpendicular to the finish line for judging. The required functions acted as a generator of form and program. The building consists of an elevated horizontal plinth with a vertical glass tower placed above to capture full, 360-degree views of the course and surrounding event space to the east.
